But, this puppy is FAR from perfect. In fact, the written instructions were probably put together by the combination of a magic 8-ball, an engineer, and a middle-schooler. It has some of the info you need, and not in the right order, and not with easy to understand verbiage.
Here's the basics of how it works: It boils a very small amount of water very quickly and then steam-heats the milk. It usually starts boiling within 25 seconds of turning it on, and for me, it's a 2 minute process from start to finish. It automatically turns itself off when it runs out of water.
1. Using the included measurement bottle (the clear thing pictured on the side of the warmer in the stock photo), you measure some amount of water and dump the water into the middle of the warmer.
2. You put in your milk container.
3. You turn it on.
4. You wait.
5. It will start to boil the water, steam heat the milk container, and when all of the water is boiled off, the unit turns off and you take out your perfectly heated milk.
Sounds easy, right? So why all the confusion? What is the frustration of these other reviewers you might ask? The answer, it's all physics.
The instructions include a little table (which although I have an engineering degree from a good school, I don't understand how the table works) that is supposed to tell you how much water to use for a given bottle shape and amount of liquid.Read more ›
Yes, this warmer is convenient, as it can heat bottles in under the five minutes it advertises, especially if you are using disposable bags or drop-in liners. However, it can get these bags extremely hot, so you need to stand by the warmer and test the bottle periodically. Regular plastic bottles tend to take longer and don't heat up as well. The performance of the warmer is not consistent. It works well sometimes, but usually only if you pay close attention to it, testing the bottle as it warms. Goldilocks would lose her patience with this one, as it is hardly ever "just right".
Here's how it works: You fill the included blue vial to the first line for smaller bottles (4 oz.), the top line for bigger bottles (8 oz.). You dump the water (which is a tiny amount) directly into the chamber where the bottle will sit. Place the bottle in and press the button on the front. In about 30 seconds steam begins to form and in about two minutes (when the nearly all the water has been turned to steam) the unit automatically shuts off. This does not mean, however, that the bottle is done. It may need to sit there longer if you have more liquid or a larger bottle. And, with drop-ins, it may need to be removed from the warmer sooner.
Some problems with the warmer include:
- The blue filling vial. It is difficult to see the fill lines on it, especially at night. A clear fill cup with printed lines would be visually better.Read more ›
This warmer works great for both formula and breastmilk. I was first worried that the breastmilk would be ruined if the warmer scalded the milk, but it doesn't! The directions for how much water to add is definitely wrong, especially since reading other reviews of this product. The water recommendations based on how much milk/formula there is not enough to heat it up. The vial for water measurements that comes with the product, I believe, must still be used. For half of a 5oz. bottle of milk/formula use half a vial of water and for a full 5oz. bottle use a full vial. The more water used, the longer it heats, but overall it's heats in less than 5 minutes. This is quick compared to other bottle warmers.
This system seems to works for us but please ALWAYS test the milk/formula first!
The reason I didn't give this product 5 stars is because of the directions and the amount of times of trial and error until the milk was warm! Also, there is a 10 min lockout time where you cannot turn the unit back on!! So test it out first with cool water until you know what will work for middle of the night feedings!

works well except not with all bottles. The heat doesn't seem to distribute evenly based on the bottle's shape.Published 1 day ago by Amazon Customer
